There are two groups of viewers who profess to hate this movie, and I have some sympathy for one of those groups. The Jane Austen purists are furious about it (“furious purists” – say that three times quickly). The story has been updated — sort of. That is, we find modern language and expressions popping up here and there, but clearly it still takes place in the past. It possesses a modern sensibility but still resides in the past.
There is more wit and humor in this version, and I am fine with that. If I feel like watching an adaptation closer to the original novel, there are the 1992 and 2007 versions to fall back on, after all. There will always be there.
Don’t get me wrong; there were one or two places where even I thought they had played too fast and loose with the characters: such as when Anne Elliot embarrasses her brother-in-law in front of a large gathering for dinner by saying he had been interested in marrying her before settling upon sister Mary. That seemed too mean-spirited for the character they were building and we come to know.
So the Austen lovers are upset in the same way that historians were when most historical movies change history or the real life people involved. I get that feeling even if I don’t share it.
The group I don’t sympathize with are the racists, aka the haters. They sometimes try to shield their racism by talking about “woke” culture, or whatever. But the simple fact that they can’t see past the race and skin color to the individuals’ performances is exactly why it is important to have non-whites playing some of these roles. Where are these hating snowflakes when talking about the thousands of movies over the decades where all roles were played by whites? Wait, what? That doesn’t offend them equally? Big surprise.

“Persuasion seems to be another typical case of book adaptations: anyone familiar with the original material will struggle to appreciate even the slightest change; those without previous knowledge of Jane Austen’s novel might be able to enjoy the film for itself. As someone belonging to the latter group, I found myself surprisingly satisfied.
Despite following all the narrative paths in the most predictable, cliche manner possible, Dakota Johnson’s fabulous performance and some unexpectedly humorous interactions are enough to make the viewing rather pleasant.
Far from being innovative or unique, but it still serves as a recommendation for fans of the genre.”
Cheesy, awkward and cringy
Okay, I did it! I finished watching the whole Persuasion. And I’m trying – really trying – to say something nice about it, but… I can’t. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if it wasn’t an adaptation of Persuasion. Because… really the only thing the movie and the book have in common is the NAMES of the characters. I wasn’t expecting anything and yet I’m so very disappointed. Why is Anne acting like Lizzy? Why is she so sarcastic? And (for God’s sake) an alcoholic? Why does she have her hair down for half the movie? Why is she just swimming around in clothes in the sea? And the clothes are supposed to be from what era?
How can anyone even call THAT a Persuasion? It’s my favorite book. Melancholy, painful, romantic. The movie is cheesy, awkward and cring. I have no words.
I give it 3/10 (two for Mary, she was hilarious and one for Henry Golding).
Far From Persuading
If you separate this adaptation from the book, it is a sufficient watch. However, considering what masterpiece it is based on, I’m sure Jane Austen is turning in her grave.
The story isn’t anything like the Persuasion we know and love, it is trying too hard to be like Bridgerton, to be relevant and have modern touches. Some of the most beloved and iconic lines have been downgraded to weak decoctions. There is hardly any character development. In fact, the only character that I thought wasn’t utterly flat was Mary. The cast is excellent but the script is beyond words… and not in the positive sense. For Anne to constantly be breaking the fourth wall was an excruciatingly bad decision. All in all, a painful adaptation that can surely only be enjoyed by viewers who aren’t familiar with the work of Jane Austen.
